daylight local time yesterday. The accused man is in police custody.

:00:50.:00:54.

They believe they've found the main culprit, to put in the words,

:00:55.:00:58.

because they found compelling evidence including CCTV camera

have been in touch with British and Irish embassies but are still

:01:11.:01:14.

awaiting the results of the postmortem examination. The victim

:01:15.:01:21.

who was in her 20s is from County Donegal. She was reported to have

:01:22.:01:25.

been found with injuries to her face and head. The postmortem will also

determine if she had been sexually assaulted. Her parish priest says

:01:31.:01:36.

her family have been left devastated by the death. They are

understandably grieving. The are overwhelmed by the sense of loss.

:01:45.:01:51.

They are supported by consular staff and by the community and people

:01:52.:01:57.

around them but nevertheless, as with all grief and loss, there is a

:01:58.:02:01.

terrible loneliness is attached to it. Daniel had been a pupil before

:02:02.:02:05.

going to university in Liverpool. Bonfire material dumped

:02:06.:02:09.

on a new multi-million pound greenway in east Belfast has been

cleared after a month-long Workers from the Environment Agency

been here for weeks. In spite of complaints

:02:52.:02:56.

about the mess on the new ?40 million Greenway, the authorities

:02:57.:02:58.

were reluctant to intervene. Then last night, a local

:02:59.:03:01.

agreement was reached. Community worker Robert Osborne said

:03:02.:03:05.

the decision had widespread support. There is a lot of money being spent

:03:06.:03:17.

here and they did not want to see that going to waste.

:03:18.:03:20.

If we make our community better, it is better for us.

:03:21.:03:22.

So how are you able to persuade people to allow this

:03:23.:03:25.

They understand that their community comes first,

:03:26.:03:28.

No deal, we have just come to an agreement.

:03:29.:03:41.

There is no money or anything involved.

:03:42.:03:44.

It is just between us and the community.

:03:45.:03:46.

Would there be a payback for the community?

:03:47.:03:48.

Definitely, from us, we will help the community out anyway we can,

:03:49.:03:56.

Although some of the bonfire material was set alight, the damage

:03:57.:04:02.

has been minimal. Belfast City Council say they are confident this

:04:03.:04:06.

new Greenway will soon look as good as new.

:04:07.:04:10.

The Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, has welcomed comments

:04:11.:04:12.

by the Brexit Secretary, David Davis, that the government

:04:13.:04:14.

is not intending to erect border posts after the UK leaves

:04:15.:04:18.

Speaking in Washington a short time ago, Mr Kenny said he was glad

:04:19.:04:23.

I am glad to have heard the comments by Secretary Davies. We have

:04:24.:04:37.

political agreement between the government is lead and the British

:04:38.:04:41.

government that there will be no return to a hard border, the board

:04:42.:04:48.

with Customs and posts. I am glad that that has been clarified. On

:04:49.:04:54.

behalf of the British government and Secretary of State. That is a

:04:55.:05:00.

commencement point for us, no return to a hard border.

:05:01.:05:02.

Air accident investigators from the UK are to join

:05:03.:05:04.

the search for the black box from the Irish Coast

:05:05.:05:06.

Guard helicopter that crashed off County Mayo.

:05:07.:05:08.

It's understood they will bring specialised equipment

:05:09.:05:10.

Three crew members are still missing.

:05:11.:05:12.

Irish naval vessels stayed at sea overnight in the area

:05:13.:05:25.

where debris from the helicopter has been found.

:05:26.:05:27.

In the distance, Black Rock, close to where the helicopter

:05:28.:05:30.

At first flight, Coast Guard helicopters returned

:05:31.:05:35.

to resume the search for the missing colleagues.

:05:36.:05:42.

Wreckage from the helicopter was brought ashore throughout yesterday.

:05:43.:05:48.

Last night, militants arrived to be briefed on the search operation.

:05:49.:05:56.

Earlier in the day, Captain Dara Fitzpatrick was recovered from the

:05:57.:06:00.

sea. Also on board was the chief pilot and winchman.

:06:01.:06:04.

Dara Fitzpatrick's sister, mother and father say

:06:05.:06:06.

We feel like the lucky ones now because we have her.

:06:07.:06:14.

We can kiss her, hold her, hold her hand.

:06:15.:06:18.

Rescue 116 was often involved in missions in Northern Ireland.

:06:19.:06:21.

The tragedy has been felt at the Coast Guard

:06:22.:06:23.

We were one massive search and rescue family.

:06:24.:06:36.

We had a visit from the Queen when Dara was here.

:06:37.:06:42.

As the search continues, so too does the agonising wait for news.

:06:43.:06:49.

Tonight, hundreds of bike fans got the opportunity to meet some

:06:50.:06:51.

of their motorcycling heroes in Coleraine as the official

:06:52.:06:54.

countdown to this year's international Northern West 200

:06:55.:06:57.

A star-studded line-up of teams and riders has been revealed for this

:06:58.:07:11.

year's International North West 201 of the real stars of the show will

:07:12.:07:17.

be here for the 24th time. That's right. It seems like yesterday the

:07:18.:07:22.

first time I came all those years ago in the 90s soap three decades I

:07:23.:07:25.

have been racing here, great night to night, great to have or the fans

:07:26.:07:31.

out and new comers and old guys a new guise. It is poised for an

:07:32.:07:37.

incredibly good Northwest 200. I imagine that is one of the big

:07:38.:07:41.

attractions for you, racing at over 200 mph. Very special, unique, fans

:07:42.:07:50.

can get closer. It is amazing. The first time last year, it went over

:07:51.:07:56.

200, I did 204, which was a thrill. It is only a few away. Before we

:07:57.:08:04.

know it, we are packing the campus and the trucks up and hurling down

:08:05.:08:10.

that road at 200 mph. And we will have comprehensive coverage online,

:08:11.:08:14.

on TV and on radio and for the first time ever, the Northwest 200 will be

:08:15.:08:18.

broadcast on BBC network television. It has all been a bit dull in the

:08:19.:08:30.

weather today, grey and cloudy not a lot happening. This picture from our

:08:31.:08:34.

Weather Watcher sums up the story for today. As we go into the

:08:35.:08:38.

overnight period though, we will see more in the way of rain. Light and

:08:39.:08:42.

drizzly to begin with and mostly confined for the higher ground but

:08:43.:08:46.

it sets the tone for what is to come tomorrow morning. We will see rain

:08:47.:08:50.

through the first part of Thursday. The skies were clear and bright

:08:51.:09:01.

later on but that comes with a sting in the tail. We will see our warmest

:09:02.:09:03.

temperatures joined the morning while this rain is with us. Once

:09:04.:09:06.

that clears away though, we move into cooler air and those daytime

:09:07.:09:09.

highs will drop away through the afternoon on Thursday. You can see a

:09:10.:09:12.

better on this wider view. The warmest temperatures in front of

:09:13.:09:16.

that weather front, clearer, cold behind, even the chance of a few

:09:17.:09:21.

wintry showers. A pretty cool with showers across the whole of Ireland.

:09:22.:09:27.

Overnight, we are in that cold air mass and is the showers coming, much

:09:28.:09:32.

cooler night and we have seen of light. Friday, said Patrick's date,

:09:33.:09:38.

not a pretty picture at all. The rain coming into the day, heaviest

:09:39.:09:42.

in the West, the best chance of any drier conditions for the East but

:09:43.:09:47.

virtually all of Ireland will see rain as we go through the day and

:09:48.:09:52.

unfortunately, St Patrick's day is the least good of the next few days

:09:53.:09:53.

without rain at its heaviest. Our next BBC Newsline is at 6:25am

:09:54.:09:58.

during Breakfast here on BBC One.
